analysis with a white house reporter of "the washington post," and "bloomberg news." "washington journal"is next. ♪ host: what will a recollected administration do with a returning gop majority? what was the message of the election. leaders of both parties give us their take on that yesterday. we want to turn to all of you. your vote, your message to washington. we began with the front page of ."sa today, this is what richard wolf writes. the two sites listed no time sticking out their positions on the potential crisis that is 54 days away. this is what the two leaders had to say yesterday. we will start with harry reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican
their voices. they will play a very important role. it you are not going to be able to change washington solely from the inside. that is what the president has always believed, that we need the american people to keep pushing on washington and their leaders. you just cannot transfer this. people are not going to spend hours away from their families and their jobs contributing financially when it is are for them to do it unless they believe in the candidate. all of this, the door knocks, the contributions made, the phone calls made, or because these people believed in barack obama. for candidates who want to try and build a grass-roots campaign, it's not going to happen because there is a list are because you have the best technology. they have to build up the kind of emotional appeal so people are willing to go out there and spend their time and resources and provide their talents because they believe in someone and what they are offering. we are hopeful that many people that helped us this time will end up running for office themselves, are leading nonprofit, or playing enormously valuable rol
can come up with. >> we need to bring it back into balance. >> molly, you covered washington. this is the fundmental issue we are talking about. it's an ase metric polarization. it's a political science. impeer cal way of trying to track where people are and where the caucuses are. the originator of this scoring system ran the new numbers. the 112th senate is on top and the 113th senate is on the bottom. there's not that nuch difference. both peaks narrowed. they cluster more around their caucuses. can the senate function under its current conditions of polarization on one hand and super majority on the other? >> not so far, right. in the last couple years, they haven't gotten a lot done. i think this argument about, you know, status quo versus a mandate for if not change something. it's interesting. it's like the republicans are making this argument that there was a mandate to do nothing because they do not want to see liberals take the ball and run with it. and accomplish a lot of their policy proposals or ideas. so -- but i think you see wiggle room. you do -- i mean every
up for president obama? a decent piece in the "washington post" today by ed rogers talking about the five things that are really difficult for him to overcome having had a bad first four years. >> bob: you can say that about bush's first term when he came in behind by half a million votes. he did all right. i don't think it has that much impact. you have to win by the electoral college. you hear the republicans crying for days after that. if romney wins the popular vote. >> eric: your number is big. >> kimberly: how do you get to that map -- >> dana: one thing that ed henry talked about the campaigns are going. three places that obama is not going. north carolina, florida, only one stop in virginia. they are worried about ohio. >> bob: having done campaigns before, the last thing you do now is schedule people. the schedule is the only thing to hold and get out the vote. >> dana: i was sorryed he went to boulder, colorado. are you worried about that? >> bob: hold down the vote. >> eric: what are the three states if obama loses any one of them axelrod has to change -- >> dana: minn
set a salary is how am i going to help these young people who come to washington. kids are burdened with debt. we have to help them out of that. they have to pay it back. it is not free. we took the wall street bankers out of the equation but that's about it. i think it is really sad. >> eliot: congressman you're so right in the way you articulate and through our conversations, all over the past couple of months you have been consistent and articulate on this. mitt romney's statement is offensive. to guess to the very core of why he does not understand the folks who don't want to vote for him. because he thinks people are bought. he think everything is a transaction. that it is mersary. -- mercenary. these folks signing up for the deferral, they want to work. they don't want anything for free. >> think about this. this is a man who admitted after he fixed his tax return so he could pay a little bit more in the one year he revealed to us, he was paying 13% 14% taxes on hundreds of millions of dollars
news/washington post poll shows an absolute dead-heat. 48%. still, in those battleground states, a small but steady lead for president obama and it's in the battlegrounds especially those midwestern states of iowa, wisconsin and ohio, where the candidates are making their closing arguments. >> the american auto industry is back on top. osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress. but, we are here today because we know we got more work to do. >> the question in this election is this, do you want to stay on the course that we are on or do you want real change? because we represent real change. >>> with that, let's hear from the campaign's top strategists. david plouffe and ed gillespie. david, let me begin with you. i know that you have been steadily confident throughout this campaign. but you saw our abc news/washington post poll still absolutely deadlocked. 48-48. how can you remain so confident? >> well, george, we have always known that this was going to be a very close race. but it is going to be decided in the battle ground states. we have an important lead in those
we will have your reaction to the election on "washington journal." calls and comments on twitter. >> to night, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. [applause] it moves forward because of the issue. it moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression. the spirit that has lifted this pths.ry from the death we are an american family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one of people. host: c-span coverage of election 2012 continues. here is the updated results. the president got 50% of the popular vote. mitt romney at 48%. 03-206.al votes, 3 0 the democrats have increased their number to 190, it does not add up to 435. some races are still on call. and in the senate, democrats remain in majority. currently at 51, republicans at 45. some races are uncalled. here are some of the newspaper's. usa today -- obama triumphs, midwest is key, political divide remains. years the wall street journal, obama wins. and the washington times, obama
supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] emma we continue with election analysis to date on the c-span networks -- >> we continue with election analysis. coming up, we will be live with congressional quarterly's election analysis. a seri
washington code for the rest of us of i'm outta here? >> that is the warm-up before the departure, and in the case of attorney general holder, it is a good time for him to go because there are still lingering questions about the fast and furious gun-running sting that resulted in several deaths, there are these other questions out here about different investigations that house republicans have had. he has been a controversial figure throughout, and this would probably be, having served four full years, be a good time to let the president have a reset at the department of justice. megyn: sort of a natural transition point. he's been a very controversial figure, eric holder. and in his defense, that job tends to in modern-day america invite a will the of criticism. i mean, we saw it with ashcroft, we saw it with gonzales, mukasey didn't really have it as much, but then, you know, holder, i mean, it's a tough job if you want to do it. who is he likely to be replaced with though? because that job in particular, we're going to get to the other suspected vacancies coming upon us, but th
show, good night from washington, d.c. see you tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. go to gretawire. >> dana: hello. i'm dana perino with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, eric bolling, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new ork city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: hard to believe, but it's november already. we are only five days away from the election we've been talking about for months and months. after taking the last couple of days off because of the storm, both campaigns are on the trail hitting key swing states with the closing arguments. the fox news election team is on the scene. carl cameron is governor romney in virginia. ed henry with president obama in vegas. campaign carl gives us an update first. >> reporter: hi, dana. this is the first bit of broadcast history for "the five." rolling live from richmond to virginia beach with the romney campaign. in the back of the bus with the rust of the reporters trailing around the republican nominee as we close in on the election day. mr. romney has been spending a tremendous amount of time in the last couple of days talking about his
for us this morning from washington. john boehner was the guy who said he didn't think a lame duck congress could do big things. what can be done in the next, what did i say, 53 days? >> well, maybe finding some sort of stopgap measure. some sort of framework on tax reform, soledad. i think that's the goal here. the fact is, house republicans and president obama and senate democrats, they don't really have a choice. they have to do something, and that became very clear yesterday when the cbo put out a report showing that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff you're looking at economic calamity. you're looking at unemployment ticking up, perhaps two points. you're looking at a recession next year. so, also listen to the conciliatory language that we're hearing from the hill and that we may be hearing from president obama when he speaks here at the white house this afternoon. listen to what john boehner also said about being reasonable. >> we can talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows
sevillia, thank you for coming by. up next, we'll be joined by david londoner, washington bureau chief of "the los angeles times." -- david lauter. >> c-span invites middle and high school students to send a message to the president. send president obama a short video, what he should consider in 2013 for a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000. close c-span studentcam is open to students grades 6-12. for complete rules, and go online to studentcam.org. >> c-span programming is good because they tried to cover both sides of the issue. not getting into offering their own opinions. there are very comprehensive about covering the house and senate and different -- other centers here in d.c. that would not normally be exposed to. >> jeff wrigh clutchest c-span -- wright watches c-span. >> i want my [inaudible] to be intensely journalistic. these days, you will miss the thing sutter influencing yourself and everything else. >> tom wolfe it is live from miami book for international. his book "back to blood," and his take on the city of miami. >> "washington journal" continues. host: "los an
up to six hours, just to fill up. i might take a look at what's going on in washington right now. this is the million puppets march. started as a million muppets, but protests of mitt romney's plan to rein in pbs and funding for pbs, are other puppets sympathizing, this kind of tells you what's happening to the country. i'm telling you guys, it's rome, the final days. we've got senate races heating up in the middle of all of this puppetry. pollsters are start to go say the democrats will maintain control, my next guest says not so fast. george allen the republican running for senate in virginia, he barely lost last time by just 1/10 of a point or so. right now the polls have him even with tim kaine and we reached out to tim kaine's office and have not heard back. they keep blowing us off and hopefully we'll hear back, but they just keep blowing us off. and senator, governor, good to have you. what do you think the senate looks like right now, if you had to handicap it? >> well, i think it's very close and all we can do is make sure to win virginia. we have a tight race in virgini
. >> janet. george washington university school of public health. there was a lot of discussion on women's issues. i am wondering if you can speak to the role of gender in the governing. we are seeing more candidates who are successful in their elections and one state's -- is entirely female. >> kelly ayote. when you have that kind of coalition and the democratic party and that remarkable picture of the congressional committee of all republican and not white men talking about contraception or ever was before the committee at the time, that is an image of perjury is exactly why republicans are having a hard time in connecting with female voters in that gender gap. >> romney did significantly improve among white women. not only did not college white women, but also the college white women. this is the first time the democrats have lost them since 1988. >> there is also of the marriage gap. if you are a married woman, you vote different in different ways. that is another thing the republican party is facing. there is new to an era where you bought your identity rather than your interest. >>
in washington post columnist dana millbank and molly ball. good morning. >> good morning. >> hi. >> let's start by talking about the president's response to the hurricane. a poll shows 78% view his response positively. what do you think, dana? is this helping him? >> well, i think it's sort of unseenly to try to gauge out who benefits from human tragedy. certainly, whoever is in charge, if it's the president, if he doesn't have a hurricane katrina response, there's going to be some rallying effect whenever there's a national crisis. this seems to have benefitted the president. he hasn't made any obvious mistakes. now, of course, there's still a bit of time, but i think by the time people become disenchanted with the response, that'll be sometime after the election day. so it does appear that mother nature is voting democratic this year. >> well, the images of the president and chris christie have been everywhere. of course, christie has been very outspoken as the rnc keynote speaker. he describes obama as, quote, blindly walking around the white house looking for a clue. i think there was a bit
in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of standard procedure, but according to a congressionp aide familiar with the matter, the house and senate intelligence committees weren't told about the investigation until just hours before the director announced his resignation. as for questions over whether the timing of the resignation, coming just before genera
to take money from new jersey, ship it to washington and have fema ship it back. stuart: doesn't federal money open up the spigots for private enterprise. if the feds are backing maybe reconstruction and backing the-- putting generators in place, if the federal government is backing that financially and with national resources, isn't that a help? >> yeah, but the federal government's broke. that money is taken from somewhere, it's taken from other people. if the people in new jersey decide, i need a generator, it's much better decided there, than the fema scandals are endless. after katrina they turned away free water from wal-martt stuart: okay, i'm in my house, a wife and two young kids and we have water up the bag stairs, i'm marooned in my bedroom and leaning out the window and saying, private enterprise help me, help me. no, i'm not going to say that. i'm going to say you cops, firefighters, please come get me, i need help this is an emergency. >> that's all local government. why would you want to send your money to washington for your local cops to help you? >> so that you only obj
on something greater than some politician in washington, d.c. that s a lesson learned in this. tuesday night, you know, i think that many, many people across america wil who perhaps before wanted to put their hope and their faith in obama's false promises have awakened and we may be up late tuesday night as senator john mccain said earlier on a fox program, i agree with that. i do believe that enough americans have awakened and understand that it is time for a shift, a fundamental transformation not of our country but a transformation of what we perhaps had previously believed in in the name of politics so we can get america back on the right drag. >> i notice even on your sweatshirt you have is an american flag. >> amen. >> thanks for being with us. a lot more coming up tonight. the architect karl rove is here. we will get his predictions and go swing state by swing state for tuesday night. also lin ♪ ♪ [ multiple sounds making melodic tune ] ♪ [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, every innovation, every solution, comes together for a single purpose -- to make the world a safer pla
the time. the spirit of it is go out to the polls. the "washington post" has a pretty strong assessment of why this is so in some ways despicable on the national stage. the romney campaign thinks so little of the american voter at this point. that we don't need the specifics, that you can get away with these small attacks to obfuscate the larger message which is we don't know what romney is about, he hasn't taken questions from reporters and this is your closing argument? >> they've not only taken out an ad but they have repeated this almost half a dozen times today on the stump. what do you make of it? is this really a focal point now for the romney campaign and their closing argument of the american people? >> i don't think it's so much a focal point but a reemphasis, just sort of making the point as you saw in the rest of the clip there, the contrast, the president wants to talk about your vote being a matter of revenge and i want to talk to you about your vote being about america. so i think they were setting that up. i get the joke. if romney had used that word in the context of so
wright in washington to lookk at the closing pitches. >> good morning as well. it is the final day before tomorrow, governor mitt romney is giving everything he's got to win the presidency. it is the last full day of campaigning for mitt romney. he will spend the day to urge people to get out and vote. he offers new leadership and faith in the american spirit. >> does anyone fear that the american dream is fading away and wondering if better jobs and paychecks are the thing of a past. i have a clear message. with the right leadership america is about to come roaring back. >> president obama went to colorado where he's in a very close race with governor and he won the state four years ago. >> this is not just a choice between two candidates and two parties, it is a choice of two visions for america. it is a choice between a return for the top down policiless that crashed our policy or the strong growing middle class base policies that are getting us out of a crisis. >> so both president obama and mitt romney will be hop scotching and landing in swing state after swing state. governor romne
with washington and what could make it work better. we're back in democracy plaza and some of the stranger ways to predict who will win on tuesday. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ >>> a now a different way to predict the winner of the presidential race. you may heard of the red skins rule. when they win their last home game prior to a presidential election, that election is won by the party that won the popular vote in the previous election. when they lose the last home game, it is won by the party that lost the popular vote in the previous election. this rule is 18 for 18. it had an addendum to it because the one year it could have been wrong when they lost but president bush won re-election. but the popular vote. in 2008, the phillys won the world series, obama carried pennsylvania and he went on to win the election. in '96 the yankees won, clinton carried new york. tigers won, reagan carried mitch, you get the picture? we could keep going. you get to go all the way back to herbert hoover. the world series champs this year come from california. and one of the newest predictors is in college foot
is in sterling, a suburban area west of washington, d.c. wyatt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're at the forest grove elementary school precinct here in sterling, virginia. this is a swing precinct, swing county all in the swing state of virginia. why do we say that? because four years ago, this precinct and hundreds like it gave president barack obama 54% of the vote, turned around the very next year and gave republican governor bob mcdonnell 59% of the vote. that means what the voters here behind me decide tonight could be the story of the election. both sides, of course, say it's all about ground game today. the personal contacts, the phone calls, the ride to the polls that will make all the difference. republicans admit they were crushed by the president's ground game four years ago. that won't happen again, they say. both sides are claiming 20 million personal voter contacts, enough to contact every single virginia voter four times. to win tonight, both sides also tell me they need to increase the margins where they are strong. for the romney campaign, that means senior ci

was right the other day when he said he can't change washington from the inside. only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance. [cheers and applause] that's his way. my way is quite different. when i'm elected i will work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with leaders in both parties. and i'm going to endeavor to find good men, good women on both sides of the aisle that care more about the country than they do about politics and they're there and we can make that happen. [cheering] now there is no question but you know that regardless of what he says, if the president gets reelected he will con continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. i have a very different path. when i'm elected we'll change occurs on energy, to build jobs, to help put the price at the pump, we'll achieve north american energy independence in eight years. [cheers and applause] if the president were to be reelected, i would be convinced he would continue to crush small business with his plan to raise taxes on them, to force employees to join unions whether they w
that most of the media is located in new york city and washington and you get a more liberal members of the press corps as a result of where they are ran they live. that's undeniable. i will say that george bush went to war with a very complacent media saying there were weapons of mass destruction. nobody really looked into it too much except for a few left-leaning newspapers. soy wouldn't say the media has done a good job in either case of get together bottom of what voters need them to get to the bottom of. megyn: there is a question of whether we reached a new level where the media loves a president. there have been many segments we have had when we talk about if mitt romney is running against the forth estate in addition to barack obama. >> there is a fundamental head wind against republicans. some of my friends on the right think there is an open conspiracy among the mainstream media to stick it to republicans wherever they can. i agree the mainstream media has given politicians a hard time. they are like werewolves, they prefer to meade on republicans but they must feed on some
